Classes

The EMF Masterclasses is committed to supporting young talent. Through the help of our sponsors we are able to award prizes to outstanding musicians, and to musicians that are in need of financial help.

This is not a competition by any means and there won't be any placing. Instead, during each masterclass the resident Professor will be searching for suitable candidates for the prizes. 

The EMF may ask potential awardees for a short letter detailing their financial situations and future plans.

We believe in helping young musicians as they are the future of our industry. We hope these awards will help their careers, and we look forward to seeing them blossom into great artists!
